CAN I USE A LASER CARTRIDGE IN AN INKJET PRINTER?

No.

Laser cartridges are made specifically for laser printers. Inkjet printers use different technology and have their own unique cartridges.

I'VE INSERTED MY NEW LASER CARTRIDGE BUT MY PRINTER WON'T PRINT. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Did you pull off the tag on the side of the cartridge? This tag must be removed completely in order to for your printer to access the toner. If you have done this, and it is still not printing, contact us.

MY INKJET PRINTER IS NOT PRINTING STRAIGHT LINES. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Try running an alignment function. See “How can I get the most from my inkjet printer?”

CAN I REPLACE THE COLOUR INK CARTRIDGE WITH BLACK?

Unfortunately not, the black slot is for black and the colour slot for colour. The two cartridges are also slightly different in design and should not fit in the incorrect slot.

However, some printers will allow you to set them to print greyscale.

WHAT IS INDIVIDUAL INK CARTRIDGE SYSTEM?

The single/individual ink cartridge system means that all the cartridges are individual cartridges. The advantage of the single/individual ink cartridges system is that you only replace the colour used, saving you ink.

WHAT IS A TRICOLOUR CARTRIDGE?

Tricolour cartridges are cartridges that contain the three primary ink colours namely cyan, magenta and yellow in one ink cartridge.
When mixed and used with a separate cartridge containing black ink, these printers can represent a similar number of colours as a professional four-colour press.

However, tricolour cartridges have a fundamental drawback: if you, for instance, print a lot of light blue-shaded material, you can run out of cyan ink and have to replace the cartridge even if you have a great deal of magenta and yellow ink left.

With a tricolour ink cartridges you replace the whole cartridge, meaning you could be throwing away unused ink.
